Kenya - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Kenya is situated in the center of eastern Africa, along the Indian Ocean. It is crossed by the equator and shares its borders with Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, Uganda, and Tanzania. The country has a fine tropical coastline and, in the north and east, a highland area which has some of the best soils in Africa for agriculture. But nearly two-thirds of the country, in the north and east, is covered by dry bushes and semi-desert.
 
2     Mount Kenya is a volcano that gave the country its modern name. It is situated in the central part of Kenya, to the south of the equator. It is the second highest mountain in Africa after Kilimanjaro, which is located some 200 miles (320 km) to the south. The Mount Kenya area was added to UNESCO's (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) World Heritage List in 1997. It means that cultural and natural treasures of the Mount Kenya area are preserved and protected by the international community.
 
3     Scientists call Kenya the "cradle of humanity," because the earliest human remains were found there. Kenya is also the heart of the African safari, where the most diverse collection of wild animals on the continent live. In fact, the word "safari" came from Swahili--official language of Kenya--and means "journey."
